Nelson's Holyground recordings were released in February as Electrotype. Nelson replaced the original band members for Futurama in Nelson found the structure of a permanent band constricting.
An instrumental on Drastic Plastic performed by Nelson acoustic guitar and Clark keyboards anticipated Nelson's later solo ambient work.
Other tracks on that album required Fox record drum parts for use as repeating loop backing tracks in the studio. Performing these songs live on the subsequent tour, Fox would physically play these repeating patterns on drums.
This sowed the seeds for later experimentation by Nelson. Playing the guitar over pre-recorded backing tracks would bear further fruit in later studio recordings, notably the Painting With Guitars series , and And We Fell Into A Dream In autumn , Nelson halted the Be-Bop Deluxe project, removed Tumahai and Fox from his immediate working band and replaced the name with the moniker Red Noise releasing the Sound-on-Sound album in February Harvest, who had insisted on naming it "Bill Nelson's Red Noise", refused to release the second Red Noise album Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam which was largely recorded by Nelson with contributions on sax from his brother Ian rather than the more-obviously marketable five-piece band Harvest's execs had understandably expected.
It remained unreleased in record company limbo. Meanwhile, with his producer from Harvest John Leckie , Nelson did some production and, in Nelson's case, sessions keyboards work for the band Skids ,  whose guitarist Stuart Adamson was an admirer of Nelson's musicianship.
Nelson's manager Mark Rye negotiated with Harvest to buy back some of the unreleased songs for Nelson to release under his own name on his own label, Cocteau Records, which Nelson and Rye had set up.
The release contained bonus disc Sounding The Ritual Echo Atmospheres for Dreaming featuring experimental, ambient instrumentals which Nelson had recorded privately at his home.
Nelson had already contributed music and released it under the title Das Kabinet on Cocteau to the same company's similar adaptation of Robert Wiene 's silent film classic The Cabinet of Dr.
In , he released the 4-CD box set Demonstrations of Affection. He was hired by English new wave artist Gary Numan to produce his album Warriors , with Numan saying that Bill Nelson was his "favourite guitar player, bar none.
Nelson also contributed towards several tracks on David Sylvian 's Gone to Earth Nelson had bad luck with major record labels in the s.
In the late s, Nelson signed to Enigma Records who went out of business, although they had just re-released his entire Cocteau catalogue.
As the decade ended, Nelson suffered a series of personal setbacks, including a divorce, tax problems and an acrimonious dispute with his manager over his back catalogue rights.
In the case of one album, the unreleased Simplex , Nelson discovered his manager had been selling copies via mail order without Nelson's authorisation or knowledge; Nelson claimed he never received any royalties from these sales.
In , Nelson released Blue Moons and Laughing Guitars on Virgin which consisted of demos for a proposed four guitarists, two drummers band which never materialised.
John as producer with Roger Eno on the duo's album The Familiar , on which Nelson also played guitar and other instruments. This experience fortuitously not only sowed the seeds of Eno's, Nelson's and St.
John's participation in the 'ambient supergroup' Channel Light Vessel , which also featured Laraaji and Mayumi Tachibana, but also introduced Nelson to Voiceprint Records , whose subsidiary labels  included All Saints and Resurgence, both of which would release a number of CLV and Nelson recordings over the next few years.
In , Nelson released two very different albums. Crimsworth Flowers, Stones, Fountains And Flames was an ambient piece which had provided the soundscape to an art installation.
Practically Wired, or How I Became By , Nelson's troubles with his former manager were resolved in a lawsuit which enabled Nelson to recover much of his back catalogue.
In the late s, Nelson created the Populuxe label, with a distribution arrangement via Robert Fripp 's Discipline Global Mobile , but his relationship with them stagnated and Nelson's last release on that label was Atom Shop in Subsequent releases have been on other imprints such as Toneswoon as well as direct mail order and later internet order releases.
In , Nelson attended a first Nelsonica convention, set up in West Yorkshire by fans in his honour, taking with him drawings to sell to any interested parties.
Nelsonica became an annual fixture in his calendar for the next decade or so. Honeytone Cody played one set, Nelson and his brother Ian played a second, while Nelson's newly assembled seven piece band The Lost Satellites,  which also included Ian, played a third.
Since then, Nelson has released an average of four albums a year, often in small runs which soon go out of print. He has accomplished this using his own series of branded record labels: Almost Opaque then Discs Of Ancient Odeon for the Nelsonica releases; Universal Twang then Sonoluxe for the others.
Nelson's Sonic Masonic imprint lasted for only one release, 's Satellite Songs. Nelson's in-house releasing was made possible by the financial backing of Sound on Sound magazine, whose website hosts his online shop  and is named after Red Noise's Sound-on-Sound album.
Nelson pursued different artistic directions. Two Rosewood releases contained acoustic guitar pieces "submitted to electronic and digital processing.
Of the former, Nelson wrote, "this set of songs comes closer to being personally fulfilling as almost any other album of mine.
Improvisation against pre-recorded backing tracks played a major role in And We Fell Into A Dream while the very different Theatre Of Falling Leaves eschewed lead guitar in favour of keyboards.
The decade closed with more voice-based material as Nelson crooned through Golden Melodies Of Tomorrow , delivered more familiar rock and ballad vocals on Fancy Planets and delved into romantic songwriting in The Dream Transmission Pavilion.
In the first half of the decade, Nelson published his collected online diaries from under the moniker diary of a hyperdreamer.
A second volume covering entries from would appear in The last ten years of this diary remain on his official website to this day.
In the second half of the decade, Nelson's live performances mostly at the Nelsonica events broadened out from solo work to encompass two other bands.
One was the improvisational, three-piece Orchestra Futura consisting of Nelson, Dave Sturt bass and Theo Travis assorted woodwind, brass. The duo of Sturt and Travis already played together as Cipher.
In March , motivated by a desire to capture the flavour of recent gigs on film for posterity via DVD release, Bill Nelson and the Gentlemen Rocketeers played a concert of songs spanning Nelson's career before a live audience in front of in-house cameras at Metropolis Studios, London.
